Active Learning, Experiential Learning, Cognitive Psychology, Constructivism, Classic Conditioning, Scaffolding, Reflection, Assessment

As a facilitator I continue to make a difference, as an artist I continue to grow, as a person I continue my journey.  Using various learning theories and methodologies, my aim is to guide / coach learners to use their consciousness and knowledge/skills gained, achieved or perceived in a way that allow a deeper understand of the creative process.

After years of teaching art and design, I recognize new learning is instituted by establishing a connection between previous learning and learning now. Indication of learning is achieved by the use of scaffolding techniques from previous lessons building on one another. My learning objectives include: critical thinking; self-evaluation; concept development; realization; personal response; and self-discovery.

Through practice of interactive learning (hands-on approach), assessment for learning methods and various other teaching methodologies (demonstration, example, one to one consultation and critique) learners are able to use their personal knowledge obtained to create a visual interpretation of their learning that is very individual and character based. Evidence of learning can be perceived through various assessments and then reflected on to complete my intended learning aims and objectives.

I teach or facilitate learners / students by using experiential learning, where they are fundamentally learning from experience. For example: learners develop drawing skills using their own observations and perceptions - through the understanding of these skills I ‘the facilitator’ analyze learner’s behavior in a way that creates logic to their thought process. In this instance I use psychology (cognitive psychology) to comprehend how learners interpret their skills acquired into an understandable reasoning. With my guidance, coaching and or mentoring, learners combine and or apply their learning to life experiences (past and present) thus gaining a deeper understanding of knowledge attained and developing it into a unique personal style. It encourages learners to search deeper into their creative consciousness, producing thought processes, concepts, ideas and visuals that are the basis for creativity.

My philosophy of being a creative facilitator is to educate, mentor, and guide each learner towards a deeper understanding of the personification of creativity and facilitate the process of learning influenced by psychology and consciousness...
